After completing her Primary studies in Melbourne, Australia and her Secondary and Tertiary studies in Athens, Greece, Calliope began a Teaching career in 1986. A registered teacher of English as a Foreign Language with the Greek Ministry of Education, Calliope later studied Modern Greek through a Bachelor of Arts course at La Trobe University in Melbourne.
